Three species of snake exterminated from New Guinea!Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 17/08/2013 - 4:16pm
In a period when scientists are discovering new species in New Guinea at a staggering rate, it has come as a shock this week to see that two “species” of large python from New Guinea have been completely exterminated.
The blame for the wipe-out is accepted by just one man. His name is Raymond Hoser.
Known generally as “Australia’s Snakeman”, Hoser noted that he didn’t actually kill any snakes to wipe out the species, nor did he destroy any habitat.
